Against The Grain
Against The Grain Productions (ATG) functions as a traditional 501(c)(3) nonprofit…but with a twist. In the true spirit of its name, ATG finds unconventional, innovative and entertaining ways to promote leadership, positive identity, unity and artistry in the Asian American community; promote awareness of Asian American culture; give a platform to emerging Asian American artists; and provide inspiration to the community around us to think and act “outside the box.”
NAAAP is pleased to host and partner with Against The Grain Productions to feature their 4th Annual Groundbreakers Speak at the upcoming NAAAP National Convention, Aug. 6-8 in Dallas, Texas. The Groundbreakers Speak program is an engaging and educational panel discussion comprised of dynamic and influential Asian American industry leaders who speak on their motivating path to success. The event’s mission is to inspire leadership, provide mentorship and provoke thought on how we are all capable of becoming groundbreakers.
